Well Then

Hi y’all! It is I, your Supreme Being Overlord!

I only announce myself as such, because it’s comical how far from the truth that actually is.

I’ve been without a car or the internet for a month now, and since I drive for Uber for my job, I’ve been stuck in my house with nothing to do for a month.

I’d love to blog more, but typing all this on my phone sucks. Yippee.

I’ll be back soon, kids.

Live Friday Nights: Led Zeppelin – Whole Lotta Love

This wasn’t the version I wanted to share, which was this one, but because that one doesn’t allow embedding, I went with this version, which isn’t bad at all. Just not the one I wanted. The one I wanted was twice as long as this one. Both rock, cause Zeppelin rocks.

Live Friday Nights: Rick James – Mary Jane

I really had a hard time finding the song I wanted to play tonight, but I landed on this and decided it was the one. Unfortunately a lot of “live” performances back in the late 70s were of bands lip syncing, and that’s pretty much all that’s going on here, but it’s still good to see the legend doing what he did best.

Also, happy 4/20 y’all!

Great Commercials: Geico – Karate Therapy

Geico knows funny. They’re one company among very few who consistently put out funny commercials. Right now they have about five different commercials all in rotation at the same time, and they’re all funny. I’m sure you have a favorite that you’re thinking of right now, like The First Heckler, or the Manatee Shirts, or McGruff Fights Baby Talk. That one gets me every time.

Those are all great, and Geico is on a pretty damn good roll right now. Because this one, I think, is one of the funniest things I’ve seen in a very long time.

Unpopular Opinion: Pride

I thought I wrote about this somewhere, maybe Facebook, but I can’t find it now, so here goes. I don’t think people should be proud of what they can’t help but be. For instance, I don’t think anybody should be proud of being a certain race. Blacks, whites, Native Americans… none of us should be proud for being what we are because we had no say in it. We weren’t given a choice. We didn’t “accomplish” it of our own merits.

However… I think you should be proud of who you are as a person (hopefully that means you’re a good and decent person) and if being whatever race you are is what helped to mold you into who you are today, you can totally be proud of that. I guess it’s just easier to be proud of being whatever race you are as opposed to all of that.

How can you hate them? I like to party, too. Source

Even still, I feel black power, and how people should be proud to have that or feel that or utilize it in positive ways. But black pride? Get rid of it. You weren’t asked if you wanted to be black or white or whatever. Nobody was.

Because I’m sure a whole lot of people would’ve picked something else. I’m sure there are some black people who would love to experience white privilege once or twice. And as a white guy, sometimes I’d like to be black so I couldn’t be hated for being white and having white privilege. I didn’t ask for it, and if I ever used it to give me something I wouldn’t get as any other color, it was an accident.

But having white pride totally makes you look racist, even if you’re not. Source

For sure I’m not proud of being white. I feel that would come off as bad, anyway. I could’ve turned out to be a better person, for whatever reason that might mean, but I’m proud of who I am, for the most part. Unfortunately who I am is because I’ve been white my whole life and have benefited from it. But, when that was happening, I had no idea it was happening.

What I’m trying to say here is, if we’re going to be proud of who we are, how about we’re all proud of being human beings? That would be something. Then we would all look at one another as such, and we’d all be equals. So can we do that? You, me, her, him, we all decide to be human beings and treat each other as such. It doesn’t matter if you’re black or white, or a guy who wants to be a woman, or a guy who dates only guys. We’re all people dammit, let’s start treating each other as such. THAT would be something to be proud of.

And if you’re not already treating everyone that way, fuck you. YOU’RE the problem.

Strange News Sunday – Arresting Winter

From down the street at ABC News’ place comes this fantastic story of a police department in New York getting fed up with winter, so they arrested it.

The Depew Police Department announced on their Facebook page that they had arrested winter. If any more snow were to fall, they would hold it against winter in court.

They also called out Punxsutawney Phil, the groundhog who saw his shadow and predicted 6 more weeks of winter, and said he should turn himself in for his prediction.

It’s a good thing winter is white, cause if it was black they wouldn’t have arrested it, they would’ve just shot it. Don’t be surprised if Punxsutawney Phil ends up being busted with meth or something. I’m sure it will be planted.

Hey, speaking of crooked cops, eight of them in Pilar, Argentina, blamed mice on a half-ton of missing pot. HuffPost reports that there was supposed to be about 13,000 pounds in lockup, but about 1,000 was missing.
